Combatting diaper rash isn’t about finding the right diaper. It’s about frequent diaper changes and protecting baby’s delicate bottom with an extra barrier. Say hello to diaper rash cream. You want one with a strong dose of zinc oxide—that’s what makes Baby Pibu a hands-down winner.

WHAT WE LOVE

  • This lightweight and unscented balm goes on easy, without leaving behind any residue—on you or baby
  • Chemical-free and hypoallergenic, this gentle cream packs a powerful punch with a 20 percent concentration of zinc oxide. Other brands? Sometimes as little as one percent
  • The trust factor: the mother of this invention is a dermatologist mom

SUMMARY

Baby Pibu Bottom Balm is a powerful diaper cream that doubles as a pampering product, and that’s why we love it. And you’ll love how effective it is.

Price: $17
